Energy Efficient Hot Tubs Make a Difference!

Refurbished Spas


July 15, 2022

A backyard hot tub is a multipurpose purchase. Your spa can speed healing while relieving muscle and joint pain and/or soreness. It provides a location for injury-free workouts. Studies show that the use of a hot tub can lower blood pressure, promote a healthier heart, improve your lungs, enhance the quality of sleep and help smooth blood sugar levels. A spa is a great place to relieve stress and spend time connecting with family and friends. Unfortunately, these valuable appliances can be energy suckers! When purchasing a hot tub, it’s important to look for a brand that is energy efficient. 

You can’t go wrong with a spa from American Whirlpool, Vita Spas or Maax Spas. They use intensive research and development to bring their customers energy-efficient products. They pay careful attention to detail and are dedicated to creating the best possible spa. Their hot tubs have steel frame construction, a moulded pan on the bottom, a northern exposure insulation system (with a unique 3-layer thermal structure), a convection barrier and a lifetime guarantee against cracking/shifting/mould. Following are ways that these spas set themselves apart regarding energy efficiency:

  • Three-layer Northern Exposure insulation system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.
    • Thermo lock: Built like a thermal pane window, American Whirlpool, Vita Spas and Maax Spas trap air for heat insulation. The sides and floor of the spa are lined with reflective material to create an infrared thermal barrier for fast, efficient heat and energy use reduction. Radiant heat energy from the pumps and equipment reflects back to the hot tub and is absorbed by the plumbing, maintaining water temperature and improving heat efficiency. 
    • BLUEMAAX™: American Whirlpool, Vita Spas and Maax Spas feature eco-friendly BlueMAAX® insulation. Made from recycled natural fibre, this insulation contains no chemical irritants and is treated to prevent mould/mildew growth. It is also pest-infestation and fire-retardant. It’s also highly energy efficient. 
    • 3M Thinsulate™: In addition, the entire spa exterior (just inside the cabinetry) is wrapped in industry-leading 3M Thinsulate™ insulation, the same incredible material you’ll find in quality winter wear like jackets and gloves.
  • Lifetime insulation Warranty: The insulation system in every American Whirlpool, Vita Spa and Maax Spa is warrantied to maintain the same insulation value it had at the time it was manufactured, for the life of your ownership. The high R-value, Appliance Grade™ construction allows a technician to service the entire hot tub and bring it back to factory specifications at your location. 

American Whirlpool, Vita Spas and Maax Spas have been creating industry-leading spas and swim spas for more than 40 years. Their development teams have pioneered a number of innovations that lead the industry in build quality, performance, comfort and energy efficiency. Their commitment to quality and innovation keep them at the top of the industry, with untold thousands of happy and relaxing customers nationwide.
